Adjustable Serving Tupperware

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
In theory, this is very basic. Although I am just a law student and by no means an engineer of any sort. My idea is to create a tupperware that has slits in a grid like form on the bottom and sides. Additionally there would be slits under the lid. With the grid-like slits, one would be able to put inserts in order to separate there food. with the insert going into the bottom, sides and the lid, there would be a nice seal from any liquids or foods mixing with the others. Obviously, the point of the grid is to be able to create different sized servings and adjust them from bouncing around. Basically, one could put a perfect compact cup of rice, another for veggies etc. The preserving tupperware current on the market do not allow this and one has to purchase a thousand of them. My vision is for it to be able 10 inches in length with a 5 inch witch and about 2.5 inches tall. The top of the tupperware and lid should look similar to your standard rubbermaid tupperware.
the walls of the tupperware should not be less or more than 90 degrees.
The corners and need to be rounded.
The slits them selves should not be to shallow, for that would defeat the purpose of them. My estimation is that they would be about .5 centimeters. Because of the slits, the bottom and sides could/maybe/should form a ridge like surface. (think of ruffles)
Lastly, the ridges, or slits should be continuous, at least in my mind around the entirety of the tupperware, which means the lid will need to account for vertical ridges along the walls of the tupperware and still be able to seal it. Although I will not prepay, being the cautious man of law that I am, payment will be given upon the winner being chosen. AND, in the event that my price is significantly low balled and outrageous I will increase it if no one in their right mind would accept it. Thank you.
Wants:
least amount of material used while still forming a solid casing for foods. The container should be clear (or at least cloudy) while still solid.
Don't Wants:
nothing fancy, the lid itself should be flat with the exception of the edges which lock on to the base of the tupperware.
Ask for Sample:
please provide initial sample

The lid groove of current tupperware bowls have a nice recess have a deep groove in them and they come clean, so I really think you are overthinking this. Just do what the man asks.

Hmm, but this will work just with hard stuff. Water and soaps are hard tu use with.

again, those are pre-made serving sizes. the purpose of my design is to be able to take a tupperware and adjust servings accordingly by taking out, or inserting little walls.

Tyler Food Truck Park
We have a vacant lot that we are planning to launch as a food truck park. We need design ideas for the layout of the food trucks (6 trucks). We need to figure out best method for getting trucks in and out of the property each day. Each truck needs to have a pad for parking with electric service. We also need to design an outdoor seating area for the food truck park patrons. Covered seating is a must. Picnic tables and sunblock structure with ceiling fans. Also, we need a small structure on the premises for a management office for the park (very small - one room), a small cabana style opening for a bar and two restrooms attached for guests. We'd like the perimeter of the food truck park to be enclosed with only one way in and out for guests and of course and in and out land for trucks. The park will be on the two adjoining lots shown on the attached survey and elevation. Please draw to scale!! We don't have any set-back limitations.
